SPOKANE, Wash. - Lanes of I-90 in both directions were partially blocked Thursday afternoon when an RV crashed through concrete barriers near the Geiger exit. 

Troopers tell KHQ the RV was towing a pickup truck when one of the RV's front tires blew out, causing the RV to crash into the barrier. During the collision, the pickup being towed was thrown into oncoming traffic and the RV actually slid along the barrier before tipping on its side and coming to a rest. 

Amazingly, no one was seriously hurt. 

Crews had to bring in a special tow truck to get the RV out, and traffic was slowed for quite some time during the busy commute home.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - A few months ago, Spokane's favorite zombie show, Z Nation, asked if they could film an episode for the upcoming season in our studios.  Uh... DUH!

Zombies still need their news, right?  It was a ton of fun and the kind folks over at Z Nation let us know the episode, 'We Interrupt This Program', air this Friday.
